BGP President Pradhan asserted the Gorkha community as a linguistic minority is facing political insecurity and identity crisis and only the formation of Gorkhaland can guarantee an enduring solution to this problem. He urged the political parties and apolitical organizations to come into unison with sincerity to take the demand ahead pressing that only a united and determined struggle from the community can win a separate state for them. He also expressed optimism saying the community which has hit the road with a statehood demand will definitely achieve it someday.

The mass congregation was also addressed by CPRM leader Taramani Rai who slammed the GJM alleging of staging drama to fool the people. He said, “Even though the GJM has already reverted to GTA, it held demonstrations at Janatar Mantar in demand of Gorkhaland.This was a total drama.” Similarly addressing the gathering GRNM president Dawa Pakhrin stated the Gorkhaland movement has lost its direction in the current political backdrop and opined the identity movement of the Gorkhas must be spearheaded by BGP.

Sharma, Narayan Bhandary, Bhupendrashigh Chettri among others.
